Sinead O’Connor Slams The AMAs, Says Producers Tried To Get Her To Appear With Pope Francis

  • So, this is interesting: Sinead O’Connor took to her website yesterday to slam the people behind the American Music Awards, saying they contacted her about performing at the show, and then proposed having POPE FRANCIS introduce her, saying the moment would be “important,” “relevant,” and “meaningful.” (Sinead, of course, is well known for having ripped up a picture of Pope John Paul II on “Saturday Night Live” in the early ’90s.) The producers of the show, Dick Clark Productions, never heard back from the Vatican (OBVIOUSLY) and Sinead said she was suddenly cut. “I never heard anything so warped and disrespectful to both the Pope and myself, as well as millions of catholics (As well as my fans, with whom I have some f–king street cred, thanks, and integrity)  in my life,” she wrote. Odd, all around. [Us Weekly]
  • Prince William and Kate Middleton’s second child is due in April 2015, which means he or she will either be a Taurus or an Aries, two of my favorite signs, so good for them. [People]
  • It’s the San Francisco Giants vs. the Kansas City Royals in the upcoming World Series, and some San Francisco radio stations have banned Lorde’s song “Royals” from being played on air ahead of the series. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Is Jena Malone Playing A Female Robin In “Batman Vs. Superman”?

Is Jena Malone Playing A Female Robin In "Batman Vs. Superman"?

I am very meh on the thought of Ben Affleck playing the latest iteration of Batman — I don’t think he’s the best actor, though I suppose Batman/Bruce Wayne does have a rather wooden personality, and I also just don’t get why the world needs so many Batmans anyway. But I might be to get a little bit excited about this new reboot if it turns out to be true that instead of a male actor playing Batman’s sidekick Robin, actress Jena Malone is stepping into the role. For starters, Jena Malone is rad. Now she can act. But secondly, HELL YES to a female Robin. Malone will reportedly play Carrie Kelly, aka the female Robin appearing in the alternate universe of “The Dark Knight Returns.” [Variety]

Laverne Cox’s Documentary Special “The T-Word” Is Groundbreaking, Must-Watch TV

Laverne Cox's Documentary Special "The T-Word" Is Groundbreaking, Must-Watch TV
Don't Miss It!

“When a baby is born, one of the first question asked when is it a boy, or is it a girl? But what if it’s not that simple?” The question, posed by actress and advocate Laverne Cox, sets the stage for the hour-long documentary, “ Laverne Cox Presents: The T-Word.” Cox, an executive producer on the project as well as the host, takes viewers into the lives of seven different transgender youth, ranging in age from 12 to 24.

The stories of these young men and women provide a face, a name, and a reality to the horrifying statistics related to the trans experience. Trans men and women face significant challenges at both systemic and daily levels. A 2014 National Transgender Discrimination Survey Report looked at the data to better understand why 41 percent of people who are trandgender or gender nonconforming have attempted suicide, a staggering nine times higher than the national average. Homelessness, which is especially prevalent in trans youth, was a large factor, with 69 percent of homeless transgender people reporting they had tried to kill themselves. Many are also victims of domestic violence, at the hands of both family and friends, according to a report from the National Coalition of Anti-Violence programs, people who identify as transgender are 28% more likely to experience violence than those who are gender normative. Transphobia and trans discrimination and violence are still all too real in this country, despite the increased visibility of high profile transgender people like Laverne Cox, Janet Mock and many others.

9 Signs You’re Watching A Nicholas Sparks Movie

http://www.dailydot.com/opinion/signs-youre-watching-nicholas-sparks-movie/?utm_content=9%20signs%20you%27re%20watching%20a%20Nicholas%20Sparks%20movie&utm_medium=syndication&utm_source=The%20Frisky&utm_name=the_frisky

Today, “The Best of Me” hits theaters nationwide, the ninth Nicholas Sparks adaptation to see release (and with two more in development, to boot). A Sparks adaptation has become as perennial and inevitable an event as the changing of seasons, giving appealing blond actresses and chiseled hunks paychecks for years now. The Internet has thrown continuous shade at Sparks’s novels and the movies based on them alike for the many similarities shared among every single one, and with “The Best of Me,” Sparks has actually doubled down, offering the same star-crossed lovers at two different ages for maximum tissue-clutching emotional impact, because sadness works best in bulk.

Taylor Swift Covered Indie Hit "Riptide" And It's Perfect

It was a low point, and Taylor is an incessant reminder of how boys can be the actual worst… whether you’re in college or a bonafide celebrity. The truth is, no matter how you feel about her, when T.
